Do you remember Al Weis?
He hit a home run on this date – his first in three years – as the Mets routed Atlanta, 9-1.
Weis came over to the Mets from the Chicago White Sox along with Tommie Agee (for Tommy Davis and Jack Fisher) after the 1967 season.
Weis played on the 1969 World Series championship team, and drove in the game-winning run in Game 2 with a ninth-inning single and homered in Game 5.
Weis was released two years later.
